The Sun sources have claimed that the director of the next Bond movie, Cary Joji Fukanaga, wants 007 to drive Aston Martin’s electric Rapide E (above) instead of one of its gas-powered coupes. It may seem like blasphemy for Bond’s flashiest vehicle to be a sedan, but Fukanaga, lead actor Daniel Craig and the producers reportedly believed “the time was right” for the secret agent to use an emissions-free ride.There’s no guarantee this will happen. If it does, though, it’ll represent a milestone for the spy thriller series as the first actual environmentally-friendly Bond car. While the agent was supposed to be driving a hydrogen fuel cell Ford Edge in Quantum of Solace, that was just a conventional model gussied up as the then-unavailable Edge HySeries. Here, Bond could drive the real deal.It’d be up to the job, too. The Rapide E’s dual motors will make it getaway-ready with the equivalent output of 602 horsepower and a top speed of 155 mph, and it should stay cool enough at speed to last for a entire chase scene. Let’s just hope Bond doesn’t need to drive too far. The Rapide E does have an estimated 200-mile-plus range and a very fast charging system, but it wouldn’t be much fun to watch Bond twiddling his thumbs at a charging station. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
